Are Americans increasingly adopting a mob mentality?

It seems like freedom of speech is not allowed or censored if it dont correlates with the mob.
For example: trump derangement syndrome. Someone literally going into a fit of rage like some extremist all because ure opinion is different and they want everybody to be on the bandwagon hate train. The media is a dangerous but powerful machine because most people are sheeply.Are Americans increasingly adopting a mob mentality?Are Americans increasingly adopting a mob mentality?

  • Yes, although it seems to have already peaked, at least coming from the left. We could very easily see something similar from the right wing depending on what happens in the next decade.

    • Just because you didn't experience it doesn't mean it hasn't been happening a longer time than either of us have been alive.

      Second wave is bullshit. If women dont stand up and ask for they work and just take what companies give then. THATS THEIR FAULT. Men are more likely to request what they are worth they dont just take whatever they stand up for themselves. Women do not. No crime is made if women agree to the wage for their labor

      True but men were offered more pay then women for the same job second wave was trying to Prevent that. now women aren’t asking for what there worth. It was a different case in the 70’s

  • Yes. Really people are going to start realizing what a failure democracy is and how the founding fathers were right about how you need to limit voting.

    • Yes that's one of the limits the founding fathers put in. They also limit on who could vote to only landowners not just any failure who wants free stuff.

    • I agree tho they do need to limit voting. Detroit is a living example of why everybody shouldn't be qualified to vote

  • I'm pretty sure it's safe to say you don't know most people so (in all honesty), you can't make that statement. (That's how "mob mentality" often starts. Someone takes one experience and applies it to a specific category of people and acts on it, and influences others who are easily manipulated - due to ignorance - which can show up as prejudice, hatred, a weak mind, etc.)
    To answer your question, it depends on the individual. And a mob mentality isn't indicative to Americans - too many people in other countries and cultures have a mob mentality also.
    We still have freedom of speech but (as always) there are too many individuals who don't like it if our opinions differ from their's. It's just magnified now, because of the internet/social media.

    • Girl bye. With the way the media was assassinating the guy who killed Trayvon Martin without knowing any facts of the case. Is an example of mob rules. Have another perspective and they go off the deep end

    • The media is a POWERFUL TOOL. Trump derangement syndrome was created by the media telling people to hate trump and twisting his words. Media tells u who to love and who to hate. What's ok and what's not. And people eat that shit up not knowing any facts but making strong convictions. The mob mentality is growing strong. It always start small before it reaches epidemic heights

  • They are
